Happy Birthday, Baylor AFROTC!
Baylor’s branch of the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) celebrates its 60th birthday today as one of the oldest and best programs in the nation.
Detachment 810 was formed at Baylor in 1948, just 10 months after the creation of the Air Force as a separate military branch. And it’s only gotten better with age; Baylor’s bunch was recently named the No. 1 large detachment in the Southwest Region for the second time in five years, beating out 34 other detachments. Baylor will now compete against the top detachments from the nation’s other three regions for the right to be called the top large AFROTC detachment in the country.
Sic ’em, BU AFROTC!
